Re: [linux-lvm] Problems: reiserfs lvm as /



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

Hi,

	These messages are similar to the ones I saw building my 
/ on LVM system yesterday.  I am using ext2 file systems though.  
The default kernel parameter is ramdisk size 4096.  I read the messages 
to mean the ramdisk is not large enough.

I fixed it by adding a ramdisk option to the root on lvm entry in lilo.conf
so it looked like this:-

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.2-2-lvm.1
        label=linux-lvm
        initrd=/boot/initrd_from_lvmcreate_initrd
        read-only
        root=/dev/vg00/root
	ramdisk=5120

Could have up the kernel parameter instead I guess.
I have not done testing yet and will give a better account of my 
problems and solutions later.

Since lvm was the only module in the ramdisk it may be that a default
ramdisk is not enough.  Perhaps we should add a note to the HOW-TO
for days like this.

JFTR. I'm using RH 7.1 and beta7 LVM.

Tom.
